Raw Food Summer Yoga Retreats in Portugal, 3 – 10 & 10 – 17 August
Raw Food Summer Yoga Retreats in Portugal
Are you ready to retreat to a place where you can completely rest, reset and let go and enjoy chef prepared plant based cuisine at its finest with a splash of yoga, and more? These raw food summer yoga retreats in Portugal are located on the edge of the Sao Bartolomeu de Messines/Silves nature reserve in the Algarve.
Expect a nourishing, exclusive, intimate and unique week of restful bliss. With my experienced team of yogis and therapists, I will guide you through a beautiful week. This is the perfect chance for you to relax into nature, unplug from the world, restore and reset.
We’ll create some wonderful dishes together and indulge in the preparation of incredible foods. Being an experienced yogi is not a prerequisite, all you will need for this stunning week of yoga is the will to explore and embrace a high vibrational flow.
There will be daily kitchen classes on raw food, yoga and holistic sessions. They are completely at your leisure, so if you just want to relax by the plunge pool and wait to be fed, that’s ok too. It’s your holiday!
Dine al fresco by the river each night and be ready for spectacular sunsets, evening workshops, meditation sessions, incredible food, cacao ceremonies and much more. Leave feeling rested, rebooted and filled with a new zest for life!
We like to consider that while on ‘retreat’ we are withdrawing from the everyday world. We like to consider our retreat as a world in itself – where we provide the space and opportunity for you to take all the time you need to reflect on your world, your wellbeing and your self.
We embrace those from all walks of life to our space and welcome everyone, as we are passionate about the spirit of inclusivity. We ask that you be mindful of the space we have created, work with that vibration, be yourself and be in joy with what resonates, and be tolerant of that (and those) that does not.
We ask you to trust us to do our work well and provide our expertise for you. You will get to spend one to one time (and retreat space) with me where I will share with you my healing journey with raw foods (I am still journeying!) and enjoy daily food preparation classes together.
We will be practicing yoga for 2-3 hours each day in a variety of styles. Classes are open to all levels, from beginners to experienced practitioners. We will enjoy morning walks in the nature reserve and daily workshops in the kitchen exploring raw food.
My cuisine is chef-prepared, gourmet, living, raw vegan food. It is gluten-free, dairy-free and animal product-free* (bee product options from our neighbouring permaculture farm are available). All of our dishes are freshly prepared each day using locally-sourced, organic ingredients where possible. I soak and sprout all my seeds and nuts, and share with you my knowledge of how to prepare the most sensational living raw foods using these essential ingredients.
Our food closely aligns with our yoga journey. The intricate and soulful connection between nature, food, yoga and nourishment is a vibrant element that holds our retreat energy together. We consider that it is all connected.
The first day of the retreat will be juice-only for a full detox, followed by juices, smoothies, salads and gourmet raw food suppers. Our food is all alkaline, high-vibration, nutritious and delicious! Fruit bowls are always available. Personal menus cannot be catered for. Juices & smoothies are served for your enjoyment daily and cannot be swapped for salads or other dishes. Please trust us to provide you with outstanding nutrition, and that which at times may challenge your cravings as well as cater for them.
The cacao ceremony is essentially a meditation that holds space to experience the depth of healing that comes in waves of pure unconditional love. During our cacao ceremonies we work with the most rich, potent and deeply nourishing Chocolate Sacrament or Elixir (sacred offering) created specially for our retreat.
We invite you to our retreat through our invitation from the plant elders and our sacrament is prepared by a shamanic priestess solely for our retreats.
We will be staying in a stunning villa located in a hidden nature reserve. A humble and rustic barn conversion that has been beautifully renovated and decorated with fully air-conditioned rooms. There are five rooms that can all be doubles or twins. Two are ensuite and three share one large, gorgeous bathroom. Camping options are also available.
Each day is always different and we work with the flow of the group, however this is an idea of how our days might look.
